Lee, NH – Red and Judy MacDonald and the entire staff of Lee USA Speedway, New Hampshire’s Center of Speed, are pleased to announce a sponsor for the new bonus payoff program that will be in place for the remainder of the 2014 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series racing season.
The new bonus purse structure is based on a simple premise. Car count. On nights when more than 14 entries are on hand for any of the four weekly divisions, the payoff will be increased considerably for each division with the aforementioned turnout.
For example, if the EKeys 4cars Supermodifieds show up in full force, the winner’s share of the purse will be a hefty $1,000, up from the normal $700-to-win offered with lower car counts in the pit area. The second place finisher will be awarded $700 for their efforts, with third spot paying $400, fourth $350, and fifth $325.
The increased payoff for the 14+ car count in the Supermodifieds amounts to roughly a 30% increase in the purse for the top five finishers, with the entire top ten guaranteed a paycheck of $250 or more, with a strong payoff all the way down the line.
The Prime Storage and Warehouse Late Model Sportsmen are in for the same treatment, as a 14-car payoff will see the winner taking home a $500 payday, vs. the $300 paid to the winner currently. Second will bump up to $300, third to $250, fourth to $200, and fifth to $150. That top-5 payoff amounts to more than a 35% increase over the current purse structure.
Not to be left out, the David’s Race Cars and Components Hobby Stocks will experience a similar increase when the car count cracks 14, with the winner’s share of the purse jumping from the current $200 to a whopping $350 when the starting field passes 14.
The top five Hobbies combined payoff will reflect a 37% increase over the current purse, with sixth place now weighing in at $100 when the car count invokes the bonus purse structure.
The entry-level Benson Lumber and Hardware Ironman division looks to gain even more, with the winner’s share of the purse skyrocketing by more than double over the current paycheck for a win. Every other finishing spot will see an increase in the payout, with not only the winner enjoying the spoils, but the top five finishers collecting a total of double what the old payoff was worth.
The racing season is rapidly coming to a close at Lee USA Speedway, with less than a handful of events remaining on the 2014 calendar. Red and Judy MacDonald invite all of you to join them for some fast-paced, action-packed excitement at New Hampshire’s Center of Speed each and every Friday night.
